Just as Sprint has been long overdue for the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330, so has Verizon Wireless. However, the time has come for my favorite Evdo carrier, and I’m happy to say it was worth the wait. With its full QWERTY keyboard and well-rounded feature set, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 is a nice compromise between the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 and the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition that I currently use. The smartphone also has integrated GPS, which will only work with their VZ Nav service not the built in BB maps or Google Maps, it also has Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera which is a welcome change as the 8830 will not receive mms messages due to not having a camera. Verizon has once again stripped out any support for its V Cast multimedia services, although Sprint’s Curve offers such capabilities with their sprint tv services. However, in the grand scheme of things, this is a minor issue. The Curve delivers where it counts–voice and messaging– and all with a great classic design to boot. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330 for Verizon Wireless is available now for as low as 200.00 with two year agreement or NE2 discount.
